Growing up in USSR I got pretty well acquainted with propaganda, and Atlas Shrugged bears all the hallmarks: simple one-dimensional characters, long profound monologues, easy division of the world into heroes and villains. Soviet propaganda had its heroes in proletariat and revolutionaries, Ayn Rand found hers among millionaires and titans of industry.
Back to audio-book. Scott Brick gives an uninspired performance; you can barely distinguish one character from another during a dialog, and his monotone almost made me fall asleep behind the wheel.
